Nice Threads


This past Friday my post was about seeing your dies in a whole different way.  I guess this is a continuation of seeing something other than the obvious.  Sports is the theme for this month's new release from Die-Versions and this card showcases the sleeveless Basketball Jersey Sweet Petite.  Instead of sports jerseys, they became fashion statements in the form of cute little dresses.

I happened to lay one die cut on top of another and thought it made a cute mini dress.  In order to create these clothing items, I die cut the image out of patterned papers, cut off the bottom portions of one (in different lengths) and glued it under the entire die cut of another.  The belt on the third dress is also from the same die.  I just hand cut it smaller and added a small oval (left over from the neck and the way I laid my die on the paper) as my belt buckle.

Don't forget to check out the Die-Versions Blog ans well as the DV Facebook page for more inspiring projects.
